We offer a range of Adult Ballet classes to meet the needs and ability of our adult students. We recommend if you are new to ballet that our Beginner/Improver course is the perfect way to start your journey. If you are Returning to ballet after many years we suggest you begin with our Beginner class and move on quickly to our faster paced Advanced Beginner course. This more advanced class will challenge you as you become more familiar of the ballet syllabus and your fitness improves.
Ballet is excellent for improving posture, flexibility, co-ordination, muscle strength and toning, it has the advantage of working the entire body in just one ballet class. In particular ballet strengthens all the leg muscles, abdominal muscles and gluteus. Ballet is a great way to build self-confidence and can also be an outlet; helping to relieve stress and anxiety.
Our Beginner/Improver course provides a fun introduction to ballet. Here students will cover basic ballet principles in a supportive and encouraging environment. Ballet terminology will be explained and demystified. The classes will cover a full body warm-up, barre work, centre practice, allegro (jumps), pirouettes (turns) and some choreographed phrases. These classes will be fun and will be non-competitive allowing all students to reach their ballet potential in their own time. We aim to inspire you to dance to become a free spirit and to cultivate a community of adult dancers who simply love to dance and who share a love of ballet.
Our Advanced Beginner course builds on your ballet technique. Students who progress to the Advanced Class will work at a faster pace will be more technically challenged as the syllabus gets harder. They will be encouraged to continue to build technique and to improve their flexibility. The classes will cover barre work, centre practice, allegro (jumps), pirouettes (turns) and some choreographed phrases. These classes will be fun and will be non-competitive allowing all students to reach their ballet potential in their own time.
In a warm, creative and joyful environment we introduce the beauty of ballet to children through story telling, imaginative ideas and props. Through these progressing classes, children will learn the foundation for ballet technique, while developing their imagination and creativity through movement and music. Ballet promotes children’s co-ordination, memory skills, confidence, poise, rhythm, musicality and physical and sensory awareness.
As the children get older we prepare them for Royal Academy of Dance examinations. Children of all ages and abilities will learn set ballet exercises and sequences in an encouraging, motivating and rewarding environment. The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the largest dance organisations in the world and offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments.
Our teaching approach focuses on the individual child for them to reach their full dance potential in a fun, loving and friendly environment. We welcome children from 4 years old, get in touch for a free trial class this week !
